It makes no sense for Trump and Pence to go about with no masks and avoiding health precautions when people used to look to leaders to set an example.

Trump's number one goal is to get reelected, even if tens of thousands of his own followers and maybe hundreds of thousands of Americans get sacrificed in the process. Trump probably is not capable of thinking his actions can harm his reelection chances. In fact if told the polls are going against him, more and more republicans are deserting him, he just calls it false news and lives in his own false reality.

Even with the cause and effect of Trump's and some governor's ignoring the virus before their eyes in places like Texas and Florida, they are slow to respond. If only Trump would have acted two months earlier and acted in accord with medical science, this would all likely be largely behind us, and we would be banning others from coming here rather than them banning us from traveling.

In order for things to proceed in a rational and sensible fashion, we would need a rational and sensible leader.


Got one in mind? I don't !

Americans still duped by the entire political process. Doesn't matter who you vote for, the same people are running the show behind the scenes. Anyone who thinks Trump or Obama were/are running the US are just Sheeple imho.

"Something doesn't make sense" >> To 'other than' American citizens. >> Is because external views are blinkered by 'Spot' sensitive TV pictorial sensation. Unreflective of the country as a whole.
Given that the UK. Application of C19 legislation varies from one Region/County/City. Creating less than 'National' clarity, reactions, uniformity and public active response. "Doesn't make sense".
The UK with a density of just ONE US State. [Connecticut ] And the geographical size of Louisiana. Each and all with its own Governor and unique legislation. Multiplying by 50/52.
What Does or Doesn't make sense 'Nationally'. Is bound to be beyond the readily available comprehension of Onlookers.
ie Federalism being contested.

Here is another example of something that doesn't make sense and/or and an example of Freud's Thanatos Theory.:

'South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) told Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Monday that attendees at a July 3 event at Mount Rushmore where President Trump is set to speak will not be required to practice social distancing.'

Reminds me of this quip by Sir Winston Churchill

Some people's idea of free speech, that that they are free to say whatever they like,
but if anyone says anything back, then it is an outrage!

Free speech is fine but Presidential Candidates can say their piece using modern technology to reach a wide audience without risking the health of their nation by encouraging mass gatherings.
My idea of stupidity is to insist on having free speech from a platform in front of a mass gathering of people during a viral pandemic.
Step by step, one goes a long way.
